EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie endorsed the performance of general manager Howie Roseman and confirmed that the NFL's youngest GM would remain with the organization. "I think Howie's done a great job," Lurie said Sunday after the team's season-ending 34-26 win over the New York Giants. Will Howie be back? "Is that the question?" Lurie said. Yes. "Yes. " Roseman, 39, is entering his sixth season as GM. The team has gone 42-38 (.525 winning percentage)

For Howie Roseman, last week's Eagles front-office shake-up cut short his childhood dream of being an NFL general manager. Regardless of his new title as the Eagles' executive vice president of football operations, Roseman will not hold the role that completed a rapid ascent in the organization. He was stripped of the player-evaluation duties he had spent much of his 15-year Eagles career trying to prove he could fulfill. On the day Andy Reid was fired, Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie endorsed Roseman.

Fresh out of Fordham Law School a mere 10 years ago, Howie Roseman showed up at Veterans Stadium ready for the first day of his Eagles internship. He felt as high as a first-round draft choice. "I come in, I'm wearing a shirt and tie - I'm in the National Football League," Roseman said. Roseman reported to Joe Banner, the Eagles' president, who had hired him to concentrate on salary cap issues. Right away, Roseman had a question for his new boss: "Where do I sit?" Banner told Roseman the truth.

AS ANDY REID trudged toward his inevitable end as Eagles head coach last December, attention naturally pushed in the direction of Howie Roseman, the Eagles' cherub-faced general manager operating in only his first season without Joe Banner over his shoulder. Some, including his boss, Jeffrey Lurie, saw Roseman as a shrewd judge of talent, crediting him with the choices made in the 2012 draft, while discounting his culpability in previous drafts and transactions, including the great free-agent "Dream Team" debacle of 2011, which accelerated the Eagles' dive from playoff contender to their current status among NFL rebuilders.

Picture this: The Eagles are on the clock with the No. 4 overall pick and the first three prospects on their draft board already have been chosen. The best available player is graded appreciably lower than the first three, isn't a schematic fit, and the Arizona Cardinals are offering the No. 7 selection and a third-rounder to move up three spots. The Birds brain trust has prepared for this scenario, but someone has to make the final decision. Will it be Chip Kelly or Howie Roseman?

Howie Roseman "does an outstanding job" in managing the salary cap. Tom Gamble is a "heck of a football guy. " You don't need to read between the lines to know how Chip Kelly views the Eagles' top two personnel executives. Roseman has spent the last decade - five years as general manager - working to establish his credentials as a "football guy" after not coming up the scouting ranks in the traditional manner and transitioning over from the business side of operations. And Kelly effectively put him back in that box when he was asked Monday about his involvement in player contracts.

Remember the names Mike McCoy, Jay Gruden, and Ben McAdoo. All three assistant coaches are considered candidates for head coaching jobs this offseason, but more important, and in relation to the Eagles, all three are represented by agent Bob LaMonte. When Eagles general manager Howie Roseman hired LaMonte as his agent during the 2011 offseason it is unlikely he imagined it would come in handy two years later as he prepares to help owner Jeffrey Lurie find Andy Reid's replacement.

Howie Roseman could have puffed out his chest or pointed fingers or reveled in an afternoon of vindication. Because as Eagles general manager, Roseman will eventually receive blame and criticism again. It's an occupational hazard. Yet on a day when Roseman was billed as influential in helping the Eagles land Chip Kelly as head coach, he refused to admit he felt vindicated when offered the forum. "I don't want to make this about me," Roseman said. "I think it's about our organization, our team, and giving our fans back the team they're used to. That would be vindication to me. " Roseman had been the target of criticism during the Eagles' coaching search, especially when they appeared to be exhausting their list of candidates.

Jon Gruden and Eagles general manager Howie Roseman have both been drawing questions - in different ways, says Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports. Gruden has been contacted by four clubs about their head-coaching jobs - and has turned them all down, the "NFL Insider" reports , not naming names. Roseman, on the other hand, is being whispered about around the league as a hindrance to the Eagles landing a top-notch coach, La Canfora wrote this morning . As of 10 days ago, Gruden hadn't spoken with the Eagles, according to ESPN analyst and ex-Eagles quarterback Ron Jaworski . Since then, Gruden has been widely endorsed for the Eagles job not only by Jaworski, but former Eagles coach Dick Vermeil , NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock , former Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell , and Inquirer columnist Phil Sheridan . And Gruden would be interested in the right job. "He would have loved a shot at the Carolina job, the chance to work with [quarterback]

NEARLY 2 WEEKS have passed since the Eagles gave coach Chip Kelly total control of personnel, announcing in the process that Kelly would be hiring a new day-to-day personnel executive. Under the new setup, former general manager Howie Roseman, now an executive vice president, supposedly will handle contracts and the salary cap. But how will that work, exactly - will Kelly make the decisions on the broad parameters of deals, with Roseman handling the details? Or does Kelly tell Roseman, "I'd like to have so-and-so, if you and his agent can make the numbers work"?

Now that Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota has been safely packed away in bubble wrap until the NFL draft - assuming his decision-making skills include knowing when to come out - it's time to pay attention again to the NFL team that certainly needs him, but almost certainly won't get him. The Eagles have been quiet since their New Year's Week celebration of organizational dysfunction, and they figure to remain quiet as long as possible. Any team that can release a star player and not say a peep for weeks will have little trouble avoiding comment on something small like the cafeteria food fight that upended Jeffrey Lurie's carefully balanced management flow chart.

The Eagles are expected to interview Seahawks director of college scouting Scott Fitterer for their executive personnel vacancy, according to ESPN. The report said that Fitterer would interview this week. Seattle beat visiting Carolina, 31-17, in an NFC divisional playoff game Saturday night. The Eagles haven't confirmed reports during the search for a new senior scout. Fitterer has been in his current post since 2010, and in that span the Seahawks drafted 13 starters, according to the team's website.

Over all those sultry training-camp afternoons in Tuscaloosa, all those midseason practices to prepare for Auburn or Florida or another SEC power, all those pro days for the dozens of prospective draft picks that Alabama produced, Greg McElroy could never get over the way so many NFL scouts listened so closely to Ed Marynowitz. "It was captivating how many people went out of their way not only to say hello, but also talk to him with notepads out," McElroy, who quarterbacked the Crimson Tide to a national championship in 2009, said in a phone interview.

It took Chip Kelly less than four weeks to hire a coaching staff of 26 after he was named Eagles head coach two years ago, but it could take as long for him to find the one man who will be his second-in-command in personnel. Although he has made many coaching hires, Kelly has never had to hire an NFL senior scout. He will look for someone who checks off the typical requirements in any job - someone who is intelligent, committed, a leader, congenial - but he also has to find someone who fits his vision for the position.

I THINK CHIP KELLY is really, really smart, one of the sharpest people I've met in sports. Eagles fans had better hope I'm right about that, because the restructuring the Eagles announced Friday, buried beneath layers of horrid corporate-speak, means their hopes and dreams are now totally riding on Kelly being not just a good coach but a transcendent, bronze-bust-in-Canton-level figure. Chip has a lot to prove and to learn to get to those heights. Bill Belichick had spent a quarter-century in the NFL, including a failed head-coaching stint in Cleveland, before he got the Patriots job and total personnel control.

JEFFREY LURIE changed his mind about Howie Roseman continuing as the Eagles' general manager, 5 days after laughing off the idea. This happened either because (a) Lurie was, as he indicated in a statement released yesterday evening, swept away by a "fully integrated," "all-encompassing vision" of his front office, that emerged from meetings this week with team president Don Smolenski, coach Chip Kelly and Roseman, or (b) because team chairman Lurie was terrified Kelly might leave if he didn't get full control of personnel and the draft.

If there was any doubt Chip Kelly can run an effective hurry-up offense, that question was settled Friday when the coach succeeded in deposing general manager Howie Roseman just two days after Roseman asserted his control of the Eagles organization by dismissing a player-personnel second-in-command considered to be a Kelly ally. Compared to Kelly, the Empire dawdled when it struck back. There's no indication whether the meeting that took place in owner Jeffrey Lurie's office with Kelly and Roseman was a two-minute drill or a two-hour siege, but when it ended Kelly was in charge of everything that involves the football operation, and Roseman was in charge of his calculator.

Chip Kelly is now in charge of the Eagles' personnel department, the result of an organizational restructuring announced by owner Jeffrey Lurie on Friday night that gives Kelly more power and leaves Howie Roseman with a new role but without control of the players on the roster. Roseman, who had been the team's general manager, is now executive vice president of football operations. He will direct contract negotiations, salary cap management, and NFL strategic matters. He will oversee the team's medical and equipment staffs.
